hello!
yes, i will be at the truman priest homestead for a few days. may 3rd and part of the 4th. i'll be showing up on the 2nd, but later in the evening (he's such a good host, i can con, err, convince him into anything hehh). I always enjoy meeting up with others that share the horror that is these cars. If we don't manage to get the clutch done while i'm there, i'm sure another trip up to STL will be planned a few weekends after.

and even then, prolly a trip up after i get my machine running. goal is the summer school break. It'll probably happen. and if not, well, i like road trips anyways :smokes:

Well if you are coming back to the area, it might be best to plan to get together one of the next trips since I am pressed for time. Excited to be in an area where alltracs exist. I think I will like not being an endangered species.

Does anyone have a wideband laying around I can rent or barrow? I want to figure out my fuel once I get up there and make sure everything is right.

Also, what kind of mess do I need to go through to do emissions in Edwardsville? They just do the sniffer test right? I need to put a cat in this car.

I am up here now. Should take this week to get settled in then I am going to start working on the alltrac. Anyone know of a place that has a press locally? I want to install new wheel bearings in my rav4 spindles before I consider installing them.

I don't know of a press since I've not yet needed one. I live in MO, but I'm pretty sure IL is just a sniffer.....

I may just have to find a shop and see if they will install the bearings for me.

Got moved in yesterday. Looks like I will be spending a month unpacking. My wife is going out of town next week, so maybe I will run into a few of you. I need to see what box the 185 oem fan is in.

EDIT: Where are some cool landmarks around here? I am going to do a nice shoot once everything is running right, and the car is registered.

There are some neat places around. You of course have the Arch. And the St. Louis City Downtown area. In Alton you have the Lewis and Clark bridge that you can use as a backdrop for taking pictures below on one of the old Levies, There are a lot of old industrial buildings right by the river, and there is also the River Road that has many very neat Photo Opportunities. I know I've also seen a lot of old Rail Way Bridges in places that aren't used any more, they may be blocked off for only walkers and cyclists though.

Great, thanks. I will definitely have to hit some of these places for a shoot once I get the car setup right.

I'm definitely down for that. I'd like to learn and do more photography personally. One of these days I'll convince the wife to let me get an SLR. Oh and I'm not sure whats going on with Gateway International Raceway, but they did have some track days every year where folks could just go throw their cars around the tracks, that was always fun to watch, and I imagine to get some good photo's, although with my clutch in the shape it WAS I couldn't even consider it at the time.

Went to the DMV today, it looks like I am good for emissions. No need for testing.

Woot. No need ever or no need because you arent required this year? Different counties have different requirements....or it may be up to the city/town?
